 Happy Sunday!

Everyone here in the IYQ family is extremely excited to kick off the 2013 touring year this week. This is going to be a huge year for us, so jump on board and come party with us all year long -- let's make this the year of "Bourbon Soaked Jazz." 
We have two big shows coming up to start off 2013 with a bang. First, we come to Anna Liffey's in New Haven on Saturday January 26th and then return to Hartford at Arch Street Tavern for our residency on January 31st. With these two gigs, we move closer and closer to the release of our new album (more details and release information coming soon). 
We are also doing a taping for our first television appearance on WCCT-TV for Chip's Unnamed Local Band Show.We will be talking about the new album and performing a song from it as well! Airing time and details coming soon.

"The first band up was called Phonosynthesis and they are out of Hartford. Formerly called the Isaac Young quartet (I think…) they have talent in spades. The bass player was running up and down the fret board with enthusiasm and the whole band had a jazz meets funk meets rock vibe. At times I was reminded of Steely Dan, at other times of NYC funk outfit ulu, who were popular a dozen years ago during the jazz funk movement. There were occasional vocals, and the band had great energy."  Live Music News and

"Though the Isaac Young Quartet is an ongoing adventure - why quit now after two "Best Jazz" trophies from the Connecticut Music Awards folks? - titular keyboardist/saxophonist Young and compatriot/bassist/vocalist Jon Dostou are touring with a new project. Billed as Phonosynthesis, these two visionaries are ripping out the components of jazz, rock and funk and rewiring them in clever, amazing and irresistible ways. The band has released one album, "Staved Eye," and has been raising eyebrows and clenched fists at a variety of clubs and festivals throughout the northeast."  Rick Koster, The Day

"[Phonosynthesis] has been nominated twice for a New England Music Award. The funk-jam band from Hartford, Connecticut is constantly lumped into the jazz category because their particular compositions are complex and challenging to play. Yet, the band’s namesake, Isaac Young, is still ecstatic about the dual recognition. “It was a true honor,” Young said. “It was amazing because it was our second nomination. Actually, during the first nomination, I was getting my home inspected. I just bought a house last year. We got a phone call from someone who was like ’Hey, you’ve been nominated for this award.’ And the first year we were blown away. Just getting the nod from it two years ago was ago was a big enough honor. Then to get it for the second year in a row, we were all beside ourselves. It was a great statement that people are listening.” Recognizing that his Isaac Young Quartet is not a mainstream band playing conventional pop tunes...[cont.]"  Bill Copeland, Bill Copeland Music Reviews
